China’s Baishanbo Nasiwyiwula and Filipino Joepher Montaño are ready and on weight to contest the World Boxing Association (WBA) Asian welterweight title this Saturday at the RCC Forum, Dubai.
This Thursday, the weigh-in ceremony took place, in which the former weighed 146.1 pounds, while the latter stopped the scale at 146.3, so they are ready to dispute the crown.
Nasiwyiwula comes from almost three years of inactivity due to different restrictions in his country because of the pandemic but he feels ready to come back and resume his career, so a victory would be very valuable for him in this opportunity.
Montaño is a dangerous puncher who does his job in the ring in every fight and is determined to finish the Chinese fighter before the limit, but he will have to deal with his skills to do it.
Nasiwyiwula’s record is 17 wins, 3 losses, 1 draw and 7 knockouts, while Montaño has a record of 13 wins, 5 losses, 2 draws and 13 knockouts.
